Hi Stampers. Welcome to the Pals August, 2018 Blog Hop. We love to cut it out so this month our creations feature our favorite “cuts” using punches, Framelits and Thinlits from the current Stampin’ Up! catalog.

You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

Stampin' Up! Cookie Cutter Christmas gingerbread men on a cookie sheet and Apron Builder framelit dies by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This card starts with a Real Red card base – 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″. Next up is a 4″ x 5 1/4″ layer of Tranquil Textures DSP.  I used the Stampin’ Up! Apron Builder Framelit Dies to cut out the apron from the Shaded Spruce 2018-2020 In Color DSP. The cookie sheet was made with a 1 3/4″ x 3 1/2″ piece of Silver Foil CS. I used the Corner Trio Punch to round the four corners and then the Stampin’ Trimmer to score a line 1/4″ in from each side.

The 1/8″ hole punch was used to punch two holes at the top of the apron and I inserted a piece of silver cording into the two holes making a look on top. Then I adhered the cording to the back with tear and tape. To lengthen the apron I cut it in half (where the waist would go).  I adhered the top half of apron to top of silver foil on long side with tear and tape or snail. Then I adhered the bottom half of apron to bottom of silver foil on opposite long side. The apron was then attached to the front of the card with snail adhesive.

The two gingerbread men were stamped in Soft Suede ink onto a 2″ x 5″ piece of Whisper White CS. They were then punched out gingerbread men using Cookie Cutter Builder Punch. A scrap of Real Red CS was used to punch out the bow tie using the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch. I adhered bow tie (or hair bow) to gingerbread men using a mini glue dot and added a pearl accent to the center of each bow. The gingerbread men were attached to the  cookie sheet with mini glue dots.

The rolling pin was die cut from Crumb Cake CS and using the Apron Builder Framelit Dies.  The handles were colored with a Soft Suede marker and then I sponged Whisper White Craft ink onto the edges to resemble flour. Then I attached the rolling pin using mini glue dots.

For the inside of the card, I used a 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of Whisper White CS. I stamped the sentiment in Shaded Spruce ink and then stamped a gingerbread man in the lower right and upper left corners in Soft Suede ink.  This layer was than added to the interior of the card with snail adhesive.
